In Memory of Monica Paynter

It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the passing of Monica after a very brief battle with illness. Monica was the loving wife of William Arthur (Bill) for 61 years, the beautiful mother of Patti (John Darlington), Karen and Bill (deceased). Best grandmother to Brett (Robin Sones) and Victoria and step grandmother to Katelyn (Jason Tremblay), Blair and Connor (Maddie Benjamin). Monica is survived by two sisters, Millie Harrington and Agnes Slack (Dave). Special friend of Diane St. Denis and Christine Caron. Monica is cherished by many nieces and nephews and dear friends that she had made from her teaching career with the Carleton Separate School Board. Monica was a sweet, loving woman who always put the needs of others ahead of her own. She loved to travel; play cards; read and putter in her garden. She was loyal to write in her journal every day but her greatest joy was to spend time with family and friends. She will be missed tremendously and has left a hole in many hearts. Monica’s wishes are to celebrate her life at a funeral mass to be held at Divine Infant Church in Orleans, on Saturday, August 21, 2021 at 11 a.m. Due to current restrictions, pre-registration of attendance is mandatory and can be made by emailing info@heritagefh.ca In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to CHEO to honour Monica’s love of children. Online condolences may be offered at:  www.heritagefh.ca

Mom met her first great grand puppy at the beginning of June. Mom always had a soft spot for her grand puppies!! My dog Charlie was with her at home during her last days and Charlie and mom loved snuggling together in bed 😊

Monica was a lovely lady who embraced Ewan with open arms. He loved to play games with her, hang out with her and most recently the dog park. Her loss is great to her family and all who knew her. We are all so sorry for your loss and know we are thinking of you all during this time.

There are no words that could adequately describe my Mom. She has the most incredible soul. I was blessed to have her as my Mom. She made me feel loved and special everyday.. She was the most important and precious person in my life. Our walks together were very meaningful times. So many memories of our time together. She will be greatly missed.

Dear Bill, Patti, Karen and Family:
Our sincere condolences on Monica’s passing. We have wonderful memories of our time spent with our “East End Teaching Friends”. There were countless good times at dinner parties and celebrations. Monica’s love of children always shone through. Our daughter remembers Monica painting her nails bright colours. She was an amazing wife, mother, friend and teacher. May your memories sustain you through this difficult time. We are unable to attend Monica’s funeral as we have a family commitment on Saturday. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers.
With love,
Marg and Randy Balaberda

My newest “bestie”, Monica generously shared Patti, John, Victoria and Charley Sue’s hospitality, her card skills and our former teacher lives with me. Rest with God, Monica. You will be greatly missed.

Aunt Monica was truly the kindest soul I knew. I remember Monica only giving warm and caring “benefit of the doubt” words about anyone and everyone, and never did I hear her utter a mean word against someone. Through her words and selfless actions she inspired those who knew her to be better persons. She had a curious mind, always interested in discussing/debating a variety of topics, and a sense of wonderment and adventure causing Monica to explore the world around her. She had a way of making each person in her vicinity feel special – her caring soul was visible to all who were lucky enough to know her! Rest In Peace, Monica. You will be missed, but kept safe in our hearts forever!

I thought with Monica at Pineview Catholic. She was loved by all. I have fond memories of her. My thoughts and prayers are with you . Nicole Major grade 1 French teacher

Dear Bill: I am so sorry to hear of Monica’s passing and send my sincere condolences. As a student of yours at St. Pat’s from 1966-71, and a member of the Athletic Association for 4 of those years, we sometimes visited at your home. I remember Mrs. Paynter as always welcoming us and making us feel at home. I know your memories of her will keep her alive in your heart. If there is anything you need, please let me know.

Bill, Patti and Karen,
I had the privilege to be a colleague of Monica at Pineview. She was a calm caring person, who had a great sense of humour. Monica always had a smile on her face and was well respected by the students and staff. She truly lived out the gospel values.
My condolences to your family. She will be greatly missed.

My friend Monica was a kind and gentle woman. The many years we knew each other were filled with many activities, events, sadness, joy, life’s ups and downs all now as memories which shall remain in my heart.
Friends forever,
René always enjoyed having Monica as a partner when playing games ( they were devious together) but always in fun.
We will miss you MP,
Diane and Rene

So many wonderful memories of teaching with Monica at Pineview. We had so many good times. Even after leaving the school our friendship continued. She was kind, loving and an all round good person. Morley and I send so much love to Bill, Patti and Karen, and all your family. Monica will be missed but she will be remembered. Xoxo

Dear Bill, Patti, Karen and family,

In such a difficult time we all look back to minutes, hours and memories to help us get through.
We have shared so much with The Paynter Family over the years and feel honoured to have been included in your lives.
Our friend Monica will be missed but remembered in our hearts.
Thinking of you at this time.

I’ve been trying to write something here for days and I haven’t been able to find the words. Words don’t seem to capture the feeling that I have when I think about how special Mrs Paynter was and will always be to me. She never let me feel like anything less than family. I am so grateful for the memories I have with her and I am so grateful for the whole Paynter family.
With my whole heart,

The universe has lost one of the kindest souls there ever was. Monica was like a second Mom to me. My heart is broken to know I will never see her face again, but my heart is also healing knowing that she left behind some wonderful memories.
My deepest condolences to Karen, Bill, Patti and the rest of the Paynter family ❤️

My thoughts are with you Bill on the loss of your wonderful wife Monica. Memories of happy days at St. Pat’s have been coming back again and again.
